Better get a broom and dustpan ready, 'cause this listing's got quite a few names to drop. According to the Movieland Directory, the Laurel Canyon Craftsman was originally built in 1914 by sibling architects Arthur and Alfred Heineman, only to be remodeled a few years later by another pair of sibling architects, Charles and Henry Greene. In the 1920s, swashbuckling actor Douglas Fairbanks bought the house, ostensibly to serve as a site for business meetings, but more likely as an illicit hideaway for trysts with actress Mary Pickford. More recently, it's been the residence of husband-and-wife cinematographers Salvador Lleo and Dominique Martinez, who purchased the property in 2007 and converted its guest house into a post-production suite. Per the listing, the 3,782-square-foot home features four bedrooms, five baths, hardwood and tile floors, an indoor and an outdoor fireplace, a wine tasting room, a billiards/media room, a two-story waterfall and pond, and a black-bottomed swimming pool. Sited on a .31-acre lot, it's listed at $2.699 million.
